9/2

Group 2 winner as a juvenile. Produced an eye-catching run in the Oaks at Epsom and runner-up to re-opposing Star Catcher in the Ribblesdale. Let the winner get first run that day and had a troubled passage entering final furlong; may reverse form.

Won the Fillies' Mile at Newmarket last year. Improved on both Guineas efforts with a win against her elders in the Pretty Polly here last time out, shaping like another step up in trip could yield more improvement. Shouldn't be far away.

Won both starts as a juvenile including a Listed event at Pontefract. Shaped with promise behind subsequent Epsom Oaks favourite at Chester and finished in front of that rival at Epsom when fourth of 14. Any softening of conditions in her favour.

Course winner. Posted close to career best effort in a Group 3 (1m6f) at Leopardstown last time out. Much more needed up in class though and has generally struggled at this sort of level. May be in here to ensure a strong gallop for her stablemates.

Denied by a narrow margin in the Epsom Oaks and while she disappointed behind Iridessa when favourite for the Pretty Poly last time out, she looked unsuited by the drop in trip. Any rain is probably in her favour and first string on jockey bookings.

Impressive when winning her maiden in fine style but she was a beaten favourite at Naas on her only subsequent start when tackling Listed class. Well bred and should appreciate the step up in trip but others have achieved plenty more.

Produced smart front-running effort when third in Newbury Listed race and took her form to a new level when winning the Ribblesdale. Runner-up Fleeting looked a shade unlucky that day and she may struggle to confirm placings; respected nonetheless.

Won her maiden here last year and steadily improving with each run this campaign, landing a Listed race at Naas last month. Step up in trip should suit but has plenty to find on form.

Betting

Forecast

Pink Dogwood (5/2), Star Catcher (7/2), Iridessa (4/1), Fleeting (9/2), Manuela De Vega (7/1), Trethias (12/1), Antonia De Vega (12/1), Search For A Song (14/1), Peach Tree (20/1), Operatic Export (100/1)

Verdict

FLEETING may have been overlooked by Ryan Moore in favour of Pink Dogwood but the daughter of Zoffany has been unlucky not to get her head in front in Group 1 company already this season, particularly in the Ribblesdale last time out. Pink Dogwood will be suited by the step back up in trip after her effort behind Iridessa in the Pretty Poly last time out and that form looks solid. Manuela De Vega could be the strongest from the English challenge after a big effort in the Epsom Oaks last time out.
